The Best of What Canada Has to Offer Naima Addow

Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is one of the continents most famous spectacles. It has been an attraction for many honeymooners and people who do stunts. It is a beauty due to its uniqueness and physical phenomenon. The border lies between Ontario, Canada and New York state, U.S. The falls are separated by an island called Goat Island. The largest division is on the Canadian side, called Horseshoe falls. It is 185 feet tall and the length of its curving crest line is about 2200 feet. There are four great tunnels used for power plants.(Niagara Falls)

Why is it important?

Niagara falls is important to me because every summer my family and I go there. I've been going since I was a child and it just holds many memories for me. I also picked Niagara Falls because it is a site that not only people from Canada come to see. People from all around the world come to see Niagara Falls which means it must be a beautiful site.

Beaver Tails

Beaver tails are dough stretched by hand to resemble the tail of a beaver. It is deep fried in canola oil and drizzled with butter and your choice of toppings. The current beaver tail recipe evolved from a family recipe. The recipe was passed down through at least 3 generations. The first beaver tail was sold in 1978, and the first storefront opened in June 1980 in Ottawa.(Everything you ever wanted to know about BeaverTails)

Why is it important?

Beaver Tails are significant to me because it reminds me of my trip to Ottawa. I went to Ottawa last December break and my cousin took me out to take a walk. We walked around downtown and the Parliament building. While walking we saw a beaver tail truck. She stopped me and forced me to try one. It was one of the best things I had every eaten. That instantly made me love Canadian traditional food.

Canada Day

Canada day is a day were Canadian show their pride in their history, culture, and achievements. Many festivities are held across the country on this day since 1868. The day was created on July 1, 1867 by the British North American Act. By 1982 Canada became a fully independent country. The British Parliament approved of the act. The act divided Canada into the provinces of Ontario and Quebec.(History of Canada Day)

Why is it important?

Canada day is important to me because once again it is traditional to celebrate it in my home. Every year my father takes me and my younger siblings to Chinguacousy park. They have an amusement park set up every year. When I think about Canada day I have memories of me laughing, winning prizes, and having fun. It is a day were my family comes together to have fun, light fireworks, and make great memories.
